Microsoft has just rolled out its PowerPoint Live in Microsoft Teams, its video conferencing and chat software, and now wants to explain to its 115 million users how to actually use it to improve presentations. At last month’s Microsoft Ignite conference, the company unveiled PowerPoint Live, Microsoft’s version of classic PowerPoint for a world where Teams is the platform for remote meetings.

Instead, the Presenter can simply open PowerPoint Live in Teams to give a presentation.
Collaboration software has been extremely important over the past year for companies that work their way through pandemic and homework policies. To meet increasing business requirements, Microsoft Teams has regularly updated and added new features to increase productivity. Now, the company is streamlining workflows by directly integrating electronic signature capabilities into the Approvals app on Teams. At the end of April, Microsoft plans to roll out a new capability in the Approvals app, where users can select third-party providers such as Adobe Sign and DocuSign to create electronic signatures for approval requests as a formal certificate. Once a request is submitted, internal approvers receive a notification and email within Teams to approve the request, while external approvers receive an email. Audit trails for all these activities are automatically generated and stored in Teams.

The report says both companies have held talks “in recent months,” according to the sources.
